The famous “Daddy’s Dancehall” in Copenhagen has a history of new wave and punk gigs that reads like a “who’s who” of the 70s and 80s…Blondie, Sex Pistols, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop…and then in the 90s, closed. This shuttered gig mecca has now been given a second life, reopening this month as “Den Anden Side” (“The Other Side”), and brought bang up to date as a dance club focussing on local talent and premium sound.
Featuring NST VMX processing of a four-point F1 system, powered by FFA amplification, we got the tip-off from Mr. James Newmarch, technical manager at Fold London – a club already using exclusively NST processing. James told us “I was helping out some friends in Copenhagen with building their new venue space. They had an existing Funktion One install in the previous place running cheap amps and processing, so I got them to upgrade their audio infrastructure with NST/FFA.”
James created some HD rack porn (!) with the spec for the system and was happy to share a couple of shots with us. Nice work, we feel…
The club’s reopening on the 4th of November featured the “creme de la creme of house, techno and experimental, as music heroes like Andi Müller and djGEM” according to Soundclub mag, who featured it this month.
James is delighted with the audio and control of the VMX88s which, in addition to 8 fully processed inputs and outputs, can source and supply audio from a Dante or AES67 network and mix these into the outputs with the analogue audio.
“We’re soon to be kitting out our second and third rooms [at Fold] and more NST is on the shopping list!”
